Just after posting the last report, I got a series of threatening phone calls, emails, and texts from Kevin C. Cannon, giving me 48 hours to recant my story or else....he threatened to take my house by buying an HOA lien, and told me "you have no idea who you are pissing off," and "you have hit a hornet's nest!" 

All this because I dared to ask him for some background information on him and his business activities before I would agree to do any kind of work or research for him, or work with him in any capacity! That's it, that's all it took to "piss him off!" 

I had to call the police, and file a report, which I'll post online as soon as I set up a website. On this website, I'll be listing people and companies operating in the metropolitan Orlando area that I believe to be "questionable."  There are so many out there gaining title to properties, then renting them out, claiming to be fighting the bank to settle the debt for pennies on the dollar. But that is a very expensive service that only a good attorney can provide, with lawsuits against the lender.

Do your due diligence! If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is! There are a lot of wolves in sheep's clothing out there, and trust must be earned. Can you get some testimonials from prior clients? If that question is met with resistance or resentment, you might be dealing with one of them; use your common sense.

Criminal Mary Beth aka "Becki" Weaver non-stop slander

AUTHOR: realty_resolution_mgmt - (United States of America)

The criminal Mary Beth aka "Becki" Weaver is on the rampage.  Opening up new slanderous posts under multiple different categories in an attempt to continue her malicious attempt at destroying the reputation of a business that would NOT hire her.

The insanity of how this began is unbelievable.  But wanted to add this comment to the thread because the attorney who originally referred this crazy lunatic Mary Beth "Becki" Weaver to me called today and deeply apologized for referring her.  The attorney said Becki was a cold call into the law firm that was referred over to me because she had a real estate question.

Now Mary Beth "Becki" Weaver is harassing the law firm, calling non-stop trying to get this same attorney to file a lawsuit against me - and for what?  Not hiring her???

This attorney apologized to me for recommending such a "whack-ball", stated she has no idea who Mary Beth aka "Becki" Weaver is and most certainly DOES NOT represent her.     Mary Beth aka "Becki" is apparently calling their office off the hook wanting to start a lawsuit etc.  They stopped taking her calls today - in very much the same way I stopped taking her calls once I realized she was crazy.

Attorney is very sorry to have troubled me with such a "nut".

In any event, the criminal Mary Beth aka "Becki" Weaver continues to post, defame and slander.  

She is a criminal with no regard for the rule of law.  She was recently arrested for stealing a license plate and putting it on her own car. Was also arrested for having no insurance, no registration, and no license.   Her license was suspended for repeated violations of not paying tolls.   Last month she has several criminal violations for not paying tolls and on March 7, 2012 she was arrested for running a red light.   What is wrong with this lady?

In any event - I think it is important to understand what type of crazy person she is.  

Here is more information on who is making all of these crazy posts:

Will the real "Steve" please come forward

AUTHOR: realty_resolution_mgmt - (United States of America)

Look Becki (which is not even your real name aka MARY BETH WEAVER)  I have tried to be nice and end this in a civil way and publicly apologize.  I posted my apology to ripoff report and I sent you same in a private email to which you ignored.   I am not "Steve" and didn't even respond to "Steve" before because I was sure the "Steve" post was of your doing.

Regardless, you remain obstinate in your vile determination to defame and slander.   As much as you claim to be this loving "christian" woman who lives by WWJD (what would Jesus do) - your actions say otherwise.  You are obstinate in your error and have zero conscience as to the reality that at a very base level - you are bearing false witness against your neighbor.  So my conclusion is your "christian" claims are false and phony.    You conveniently wear the "christian" hat when it serves your purposes.   I'm hoping the folks at Northland Church or whatever other church you frequent might see this and try to help you out.

And as much as you claim I am some type of scammer or fraud who is deceiving the world, at least I am not HIDING my real name.   What are you trying to hide by using "Becki" instead of your real name which is MARY BETH WEAVER??????    

Does MARY BETH WEAVER have some skeletons in the closet and CRIMINAL ARREST RECORDS that she is trying to hide.     A very simple google search

( http://florida.arrests.org/Arrests/Mary_Weaver_5632834/ )  

reveals that your drivers license has been suspended and you were recently arrested at a traffic stop for having a stolen counterfeit license plate attached to your car and various other criminal violations including multiple violations of failing to pay tolls which have led to the suspension of your driver's license.    Yet as obstinate as you are - you continue to drive around.

But I'm sure none of this was your fault hmmm?   Maybe it was my evil company that got you pulled over.  Do you think?

No it MUST have been the evil police officer's fault that you don't have insurance, don't have a valid registration, don't have money to pay the tolls you drove through and had to steal a counterfeit license plate to put on your car to drive around???   Maybe it is the fault of the entire police department and not yours.   Hmm?

Be careful when you drive down to the police station to file that police report against me - they might just lock you up.

The patterns here are clear.  Your actions speak louder than words.  Your history speaks louder than any false, malicious post you can come up with.  

As an accuser you began this circus falsely accusing me and my company when in truth - you seem to live a reckless and  crazed life where you have absolutely no respect for the rule of law or basic civil decency.   You take it upon yourself to be judge, jury and executioner and post false, malicious allegations on this online reporting site knowing full well that these comments can and will NEVER be removed by ripoff report.     Ultimately, you knew this and this was your intention.  To forever have a false, malicious, slanderous post of record online.

I have publicly apologized and forgiven you.   That is all I can and must do.   As far as your continued reckless and crazy lifestyle - that you must change yourself.   Lets hope the Criminal Traffic Court Judge grants you the same mercy.

And word of advice - I wouldn't continue driving around with a suspended license, no insurance, no registration and counterfeit plates.   Next time you get pulled over - you will spend quite a bit of time in jail and instead of begging some stranger for a job - you will be begging some stranger to bail you out.

And to the person that does bail you out - may Almighty God have mercy as I'm sure you will turn on them with same false, fabricated story if it serves your purposes.

Good luck Mary Beth.   I wish you the best.

Ah, the old "You must work for the company" bit.

AUTHOR: Steve - (USA)

It amazes me how many people on this site cannot conceive of someone disagreeing with them unless they are shilling for the company in question. Let me ask you something: how much did Kevin say he was going to charge you to do this little scheme? Doesn't make much sense for him to propose something where there is no money in it, eh?

In any event, if your report is true, then you have warned off others who may fall victim to... well, I'm not sure what, besides not having the scheme pan out. But if you are full of it, then this report does nothing, as he does not market to consumers. 

One more question - how the heck do you owe $150K? Was the property really worth that much more than it is worth now? I know that Florida real estate got hit pretty hard, but that seems extreme. 

I still say you should walk away from the house (though I am not in the biz, so you probably should not listen to me). If before you do that you could somehow scrape together 40K (probably impossible to do given your debt to asset ratio), you could buy a comparable house, and voila: you have now "settled" your debt for 33 cents on the dollar! Again, I say this somewhat tongue-in-cheek, as I am not qualified to give this kind of advice. But if I were you, I would at least investigate it. I would definitely at least threaten the mortgage holder with walking away; that is a good negotiation tactic.

Wow, for such a "successful businessman," you sure have a lot of time on your hands.

There IS no "Steve." All I can say is the depths to which you will go, on a daily basis, amaze me.

Get yourself some help.

And lose the "we." There IS no we. It's just you, a computer, and a phone.

Response to Steve

AUTHOR: realty_resolution_mgmt - (United States of America)

I didn't respond to this comment by Steve because I thought probably a shill post by Becki.

To clarify, what began with a phone call and question continued into a detailed conversation about her current situation.  When I explained that I buy distressed assets, mitigate and resell them for a profit - Becki inquired as to whether I could buy her lien at a discount, foreclose her 2nd mortgage and then mitigate her 1st mtg and do all of this work - to then simply sell home back to her so she could keep it.

As you may know, there is really nothing improper about this scenario provided I am operating as an arms length creditor in buying and mitigating debt for profit acting independently of and with no relation to the mortgagor.   Where it turns into a major problem of fraud is when there is collusion with the mortgagor in an attempt to defraud a lender for the benefit of the mortgagor/homeowner.

If I cross the line and begin buying distressed assets "working together with and for" homeowners/mortgagors with the sole intent of discounting the debt with lenders for the primary benefit of the mortgagor - then that is a major problem.  What you're really describing is short sale/mortgage fraud.  

First of all I would never do that but more importantly - there is absolutely no financial incentive to do so.  Why do all that work only to sell the asset back for a fraction of what the 3rd party buyer in the retail market would pay?

I explained this to Becki Weaver and also explained that this is WHY I do NOT work "for" homeowners.  I do not rescue homeowners.   That is a job for an attorney.  I am solely interested in buying a distressed asset for my own purposes of doing what we do and making a profit - completely separate and independent of the mortgagor/homeowner.

So you have a scenario where under one condition - it is a viable business model that is implemented by countless distressed asset investors across the country and under another condition - that being working "with and for" the homeowner/mortgagor - the same scenario becomes an entirely different matter with serious consequences.

Becki just couldn't seem to understand this.  

In the end - she told me she entered into a modification with her lender and although her principal balance was not reduced - it was deferred to a point where her payment was reduced substantially.  I just told her to keep living there, keep paying her mortgage and when and if her HOA begins action - deal with it then.

She was very happy with my advice - continued to tell me about herself and that she was great with people etc.  I really liked her but just wasn't looking to hire anyone.  She continued to press the issue through calls, emails, texts as I described in previous rebuttal and even at one point proposed starting a partnership and forming a company to work together and partner on deals etc.  

I just was not interested in this and kind of stopped communicating with her.  I think this is where she got a bit mad and began drawing all sorts of false conclusions that I am some sort of scammer.  Truth is I could show her discounts, payoffs and deals that would blow the average person's mind as most people would not believe that you can buy assets for pennies - but then the question is WHY do I need to show her or anyone else this proof? 

I have a team of very talented people that assist me and together we are very effective.  I know what we do and I know what we can do and I don't need to prove that to anyone - most certainly not Becki Weaver.

Its too bad the entire thing exploded into this circus. I probably should have just ignored her initial posting but I think any business owner would be angered and do the same.  I publicly apologized to Ms. Weaver in the other post.  In hindsight, there were things that shouldn't have been said.  It was anger talking and I apologize for that.

It is what it is.   Hope this clarifies a bit.   Thank you for the kind words on the website.  It is a simple and to the point site that is not meant for retail homeowners.  It is meant to connect to persons who are in positions where efficient and timely asset liquidation is required.

#6 Consumer Comment

Cannon definitely seems on the money here, but he needs to lay off the talk radio a bit

AUTHOR: Steve - (USA)

I looked at Kevin's "website," really just a single page with not much info. Actually, the lack of info was itself quite a BIT of info, as anyone who is out promising to help homeowners settle for "pennies on the dollar" would have quite the website promoting this (and that industry is definitely full of scammers) . Someone who does as he claims to do, however (i.e. buys distressed assets) would have exactly his kind of site - describe that he is a liquidator, and give some contact info. People like him generally seek out items to purchase anyway, so I'd imagine promotion is not that important. 

And people like him most certainly ARE most certainly good for the economy, as what he does helps increase liquidity; there are obviously owners of mortgages who want to unload them at their current market value (which can indeed be pennies on the dollar compared to the current balance of the mortgage), and those lenders need buyers. And no, I'm not in real estate, but as a consumer I have gone to "going out of business" sales where I have purchased items that indeed were less than 50% off what they originally sold for. Same exact concept.

Also, if Kevin gets these houses fixed up and resold at a higher price, that means he is creating wealth, which is good for the economy. Not to mention it helps raise housing prices in the neighborhood, which benefits the people that live there. 

Kevin - trying to spin a whackjob's post into some kind of political commentary is lame; pretty much the only people who talk about Saul Alinsky have a weird fear that Obama is going to turn us into the U.S.S.R. or something. Don't get me wrong, there are indeed people who can't stand success (OWS, for example), but this woman just seem crazy. I mean, I can understand why you would be defensive, as the uneducated would be mad at you for being in a "vulture" business, i.e. one that profits off others' losses (the way people get mad at short sellers). They don't see that you do indeed provide a valuable service.

Becki - It may not be Kevin's place to tell you if you should stop paying, but I'll take up that one: assuming he is telling the truth about your current LTV (but it is hard to believe his figures), then YES. Unless you are super worried about your credit,  stop paying, and wait for them to foreclose. When they do (and you can usually postpone it for a while), move out your stuff, have the house cleaned so you go out with some class, and leave the keys on the counter. Again, your credit will take a hit, but for $100,000 (i.e the negative value of your mortgage) I would go for it. Note that this is not a moral decision, but a business one.

Wow Here Becki Weaver goes again

AUTHOR: realty_resolution_mgmt - (United States of America)

I guess this is never going to end for this lady???   If you are a business owner and this lady comes to you for a job - BEWARE!!  As can be seen from her posts - she is a trouble maker.   She seems to automatically take the position that any business that is successful and profitable in this bad economy is somehow evil and doing something wrong?  A google search on her name reveals that she seems to subscribe to a "saul alinsky" type mentality of attempting to slander and destroy those that don't do what she wants them to do.   There are quite a few blog posts out there where she has done the exact same thing she is doing here - attacking the name, credibility and reputation of people and businesses she knows absolutely nothing about.

So if you are a business thinking of hiring her - be very careful.   She recently took a job with a very popular and well known realtor in the area that is endorsed by major radio personalities and she had nothing but negative things to say about him - only after a few months working with him.  At the time I thought it was odd but it didn't occur to me that this is what she does.  She gets inside a company, finds out that she will actually have to work hard to make money, doesn't have success and then slanders and blames the company for her lack of success.  It just seems that Becki Weaver is not successful in life and she wants to blame everyone else for what is essentially her own fault.

What is crazy with our situation is we had no relationship with her at all?  This is just madness.

She was referred out of the blue.   She called and was terrified her Homeowners Association was going to foreclose their lien and take her home.   She contacted me, asked me if that was possible (answer was yes) and then she proceeded to talk about how she could save her home and make it work. 

She mentioned she had completed a modification agreement with her lender but her condo was so far upside down she wanted to stop paying the mortgage on it.  She asked my opinion and my response was she was contractually obligated to pay the mortgage and it was not my place to tell her to stop paying.   That would be her decision.  Then she asked if it would be possible for me to buy and mitigate her liens and sell her home back to her.   She denies talking about this because she now realizes that she was proposing mortgage fraud but truth is - she brought it up.  My response to that is above.  How would I possibly know all this information if she didn't provide it?

And as much as she denies it - the ultimate cause of all this madness is simply because we refused to "carve out" a paid position for her in our company.  She is running around selling AFLAC insurance knocking on doors and said she is not making any money.  Her roommate was moving out, and she didn't know what to do. As much as anyone would feel for her situation - the fact is we were not looking to hire anyone.  She called numerous times asking "isn't there anything I can do that could generate a regular weekly paycheck".   She kept pushing this and when communication was stopped with her (because it was determined something was not right) is when she went on the saul alinsky campaign to defame and discredit.

The fact is - we buy assets. We DO NOT help homeowners stop foreclosure or save their homes.  We are not a rescue company, not realtors, not attorneys, not mortgage brokers and have never represented as such.  We are investment company that buys distressed real estate for a profit.  Not interested in saving the world, not doing it to save the environment, not to save the trees, save the  seals or stop global warming as seems Ms. Weaver has an interest in.   We are in business to make a profit plain and simple and we provide a very valuable service to communities in rehabilitating homes that sit abandoned.

A couple of clarifications on her most recent rant.

What Ms. Weaver simply fails to understand is that we buy distressed assets and pay money for those assets as-is.   The sellers of the assets agree in a purchase agreement to sell the assets as-is. We have a closing per the contract and the ownership of the asset is transferred.  Not that I have to explain the business model but no fees or money is charged to any owner of the asset.  Money is PAID to the owner for the asset.  Then the liens are discounted/mitigated and this work is performed by contracted attorneys that are paid a retainer by our company.  When the liens are discounted, we generally will renovate the property to bring it back to life and then sell it for a profit.  

Ms. Weaver seems to have this concept stuck in her head that we are somehow working for homeowners to "save" homeowners when that is NOT what we do.   She thinks we are misleading or defrauding distressed homeowners when in fact - these homeowners are the ones selling their homes to us.   And they are happy to sell the homes and get money.   They read and sign a purchase agreement.  Many of the homes purchased have negative equity and worth nothing.  In some instances we will pay several thousand dollars for these homes depending on the liens and the lenders.

And she continues on this "partnership" homeowner-rescue theme that we somehow partner with homeowners to help them.  That we "promise" them to discount liens for pennies on the dollar.  We are not working "for" homeowners.  We are working "for" our own business to make a profit.  Something Ms. Weaver feels is evil.

Lastly Ms. Weaver continues to assert that no one can discount liens with banks.  Becki Weaver demanded we show her everything we do and we refused - simply because she has absolutely no reason to see anything. 

In her delusion she states as fact that it is NOT possible to get lenders to accept less than 50 cents on the dollar as a payoff.   Anyone who knows what they are doing in real estate today knows that not only is this possible, but it is happening.

There was a property we worked on where we discounted a $250,000 lien to a $1,000 payoff.  You can do the math on that one to see that not only is it far less than 50% but it is actually fractions of a penny on the dollar.

If Ms. Weaver wasn't such a pompous delusional a*s - and opened her eyes to the true opportunity in the marketplace today - she would probably be doing very well and not have to look for a job.

Do not deal with Kevin Cannon - he is a loose cannon!

AUTHOR: Concerned Citizen - (United States of America)

Unbelievable. Let me first address this lie:

I called Kevin Cannon after my real estate attorney gave me his number, which she is sorry about now, since she didn't research him, but he called her out of the blue, soliciting bankruptcy attorneys for referrals, to offer them his "services," claiming to have the ability to get debt settled on your property for pennies on the dollar.

Virtually everything else he wrote in there is a lie also. I'm actually impressed at the imagination it took to come up with such a sordid pack of lies about someone who's only "crime" was researching him and then adding to a group of RIPOFF REPORTS that had already been accumulating on him.

But it just confirms everything I suspected about him - that he is a bully and a vulture who preys on people who are at risk of losing their home to various types of liens, and is seriously psycho.

Kevin Cannon (who is NOT the attorney by the same name in this city, but at times may act like he is in the legal profession,) will talk for hours explaining that he can settle debt owed on upside down homes for "pennies on the dollar," and create a trust, putting the property in it with your name as a silent partner, and you end up owning the home for a fraction of what it's worth.  

"IS THIS LEGAL?" I asked. "YES," he told me. Of course it's going to cost you some money, etc.....

(Sounds too good to be true, right? Yeah, that's what I thought too!)

Because it IS too good to be true, and is not only unethical, but illegal.
But he claims he does it "all the time."  
Don't dare to ask for testimonials -
He has ZERO people that he can refer anyone to - and will deeply resent it....
That's pretty much the gist of all the venom that Kevin Cannon spewed out on this page - trying to discredit me because I exposed him.

Here is what he said in the report, but these words were NEVER spoken, and I had no idea what kind of "service" he offered until HE told ME - 

"While I told her I could do that I explained it would be fraud against her lender as the pretense under which that would take place would be collusion with the intent to commit mortgage fraud by defrauding her mortgage lenders in order to benefit her. " (WOW! He ADMITS that the very "service" he'd told me he provides is FRAUD!)

Be very careful in your dealings with Kevin Colin Cannon, Realty Resolution Management, LLC, or any other LLC he forms, none of which will show his name.

I had to call the police to get him to stop harassing me, and may have to move out of my home since he's begun posting my address online.

Becki W is Crazy

AUTHOR: realty_resolution_mgmt - (United States of America)

Where to begin with this lady.  Here is yet another post.  Read the rebuttal in her other complaint to learn more about this nice "christian" lady.  She is quite simply - a nut bag.

When she originally contacted me - she asked if I could buy her HOA lien at a discount and foreclose her 2nd mtg and negotiate her 1st mtg down so she could buy back her home for what it is worth.  The condo is worth approximately $40,000 and she owes $150k ++.

While I told her I could do that - I explained it would be fraud against her lender as the pretense under which that would take place would be collusion with the intent to commit mortgage fraud by defrauding her mortgage lenders in order to benefit her.  

So what the innocent Ms. Becki Wr was proposing to me was to commit fraud.  She wanted me to fraudulently assist her in avoiding paying the contractual obligation she signed and agreed to pay to her 1st and 2nd mortgage lenders.

I told her no.   

Now in this post she acts like buying the HOA lien and foreclosing her is a "threat" when that is what she wanted me to do only I refused to do it for her.

Truth is - anyone could go buy her HOA lien tomorrow and foreclose her home and take ownership.  That is done everyday by countless investors in real estate.

This lady is absolutely crazy.  Never seen anything like it.
